Did a talk last night at the BCS about what makes a great user experience. High point of the evening, I showed my mental notes cards and did an experiment with the audience to illustrate anchoring & adjustment.

What the hell is going on around here?!? First I get thwacked by a car and end up in ICU, then Nicki’s Mum has a stroke and then she’s back in an ambulance today with CLF giving herself whiplash on the trampoline (HEF and CLF are now happy they’ve both been issued neck braces).
